You are right, it is just like take home. Absolutely fantastic!
Awesome! Very tangy.
My husband and I both thought this was good. We added some soy sauce to our plates to cut the sweetness of the Jello. I used sugar free Jello and served with rice. Next time, I will add onions for a little extra flavor.
very good ALL of my family loves it
Great recipe! It's very important to let the sauce cool a little bit though. It tasted much better when it wasn't really hot. I tweaked the recipe ... I used orange jello and squeezed an orange into it and added some crushed red pepper. Also I fried the chicken. Delicious!
I make this probably once a week, and have to stock up on Jello every time I go to the store. My husband prefers orange Jello over the lemon; it's his new favorite dish. I usually dredge the chicken in flour before frying it up in a little olive oil; it adds a crisp underneath the sauce like real Chinese. My kids are still getting used to surprise there!
Though skeptical, I thought I'd give the jello trick a try and it worked out very nicely. I used sugar free jello and also added red pepper flakes to balance out that sweetness. My husband liked it and so did I. My three-year old wasn't sure about the flavor though. I would make it again - better than getting expensive takeout.
If you like hot lemon jello you might like this. My husband and I didn't.
My toddler who usually loves chicken wouldn't touch this dinner. My hubby said it was fine. He ended up eating potato chips at the counter while my toddler ran around asking for anything else to eat as I sat alone at the table finishing my plate. Not my idea of a family meal.
Just put the last smidge of this in the fridge. My "ew" teenager thought it was all right but didn't go for the veggies (surprise...) but my tween loved it. Next time we'll add more & different veggies. I was worried about the jello-ness of the sauce but the girls couldn't believe it and thought it was really good. Hmm, I wonder how cherry beef would be...
